July 28.—Russia, has failed so far to do-more than slow- up the German advance In Galicia. Dispatches today indicated a hardening of the Russian lines In the threatened sector and desperate offensive attacks launched at other points on the great front, designed to relieve the pressure that was strongly closing about Czernowitz. The Teutonic advance has been amazing in speed. German dispatches insisted today that the Russians were abandoning Czernowitz in the face of close approach of the Austro-German armies. The day before these invading forces were reported more than fifty miles distant. Tbe Rumanian army, reformed and completely revived from their crushing defeats of last fall, is vigorously pressing the enemy far to the south. In almost the same sector, the Russians were conducting an orderly retreat to better positions, inflicting considerable losses on their pursuers and apparently having suffered no loss of morals. that Germany was preparing some new move, on the west front was given today in a continuation for the third successive day of the violent enemy artillerying in the sea coast sector of the British line and of an attempted raid around Ostraverne. Field Marshal Haig's report said: "In the neighborhood of Armentleres to north of Ypres and in the Nieu- port sector, the enemy artillery was engaged in considerable activity. "South of Armentieres at night we raided the enemy. East of Osta- verne an enemy raid was repulsed." Unofficial front dispatches have recently described the German fire around Nieuport and Ostaverne (in Belgium) as approaching the intensity of drmnfire. , MERCY, department apparently has power to continue drawing men to fill up quotas. After the first two five hundred thousand groups have been called, the secretary of war can get other men to maintain those groups. A_| watage runs about one third, he could continue calling out about 90,000 men a year to fill up the gaps or to maintain" lasting troops. In this way, with the national army, national guard and regular army, the United States would have about two million fighting men always in Europe. The question of transporting such forces to Europe furnishes a vexatious task, but indications are there will he sufficient tonnage for transports and supply ships when they are needed. As at present estimated 600,000 or more soldiers should be on French soil by Sept. 1918. The war department today icorrect- ed the impression that France was to manufacture all our heavy artillery. Baker said part of it would be made there, but that the United States has no intention of ditching it's own very good models or of stopping production here. In i fact, the war department has an ambitious program of "fortifications" costing more than $2,000,- 000,000. This sum covers not only- heavy artillery but also a vast quantity of field artillery. By, United Press. Napoleon, July 28.—Mrs. E. C. Bullock, 28, of Chicago and Mrs. B. O. Chenevert, 44, of Defiance, are dead today as a result of an auto accident near here last night.

The Bollinger case received additional notority only a few days ago when Baby Meter, a similarly imperfect Infant, was allowed to die by Dr. Haiselden. The shock of the infant's hopeless condition at birth; Dr. Haiselden's verdict to permit it to die and the attendant notority were more than the mother could stand, Allen Bollinger, the woman's "insband declared. "She was never the same afterward," he said. "I was afraid her mind would give way under the strain and I tried to cheer her but she never recovered from her grief. IB ever a woman died of a broken heart, she did." The Bollinger case became famous throughout America and European medical circles. Dr. Haiselden's verdict that the Child should die became the subject of a hot controversy between medical men and laymen. The Bollinger infant would probably have lieen an imbecile if allowed to live, according to Dr. Haiselden, who gave the same reasons for permitting Baby Meter to die. In connection with the death of Baby Meter. Dr. Haiselden said he believed if it was human to take the life of an animal which was hopelessly- crippled, it was likewise humane to permit a hopelessly imperfect infant to pass into the next world. ^ wrestled with problems of getting money and food for the maintenance of the soldiers. Faced with the task of raising billions by taxation and bond issues, the senate finance committee and the house appropriations and ways sent out thousands of exemption buttons. The war department considered how to include men reaching the 21 year old class between now and the second call, and also how perhaps to exclude those passing their 31st birthday In the meantime.
